Aislinn Sandre presented at talk at the annual meeting of the Society for Psychophysiological Research (SPR) entitled: Comparing the effects of different methodological decisions on the error-related negativity and its association with behavior and gender.
She also had a first-author journal article accepted!:
Sandre, A. †, & Weinberg, A., (in press) Neither wrong nor right: Theta and delta power increase during performance monitoring under conditions of uncertainty. International Journal of Psychophysiology.
Iulia Banica was featured in a "Faces of the Future" flash talk symposium at the Society for Psychophysiological Research (SPR), and gave an excellent talk entitled: The error-related negativity (ERN) predicts daily negative affect during times of academic stress.
Paige Ethridge won a President's pick award for best student-authored manuscript in the journal Psychophysiology, for her first-author paper entitled: Ethridge, P. †, Kujawa, A.J., Dirks, M.A., Arfer, K.B., Kessel, E.M., Klein, D.N., & Weinberg, A. (2017) Neural Responses to Social and Monetary Reward in Early Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood. Psychophysiology, 54, 1786-1799
Clara Freeman won a student poster award at SPR, for her poster entitled: Freeman, C. †, Dirks, M.A., & Weinberg, A. (2019). Risk-taking and neural response to reward across adolescence.
And last but not least, TRAC lab alumna Claire Punturieri and current TRAC lab coordinator Héléna Renault were also on hand at SPR to present posters!
Claire presented one entitled "Neural responses to peer acceptance moderate associations between peer-nominated peer victimization and depressive symptoms in early adolescence,"
And Héléna presented one entitled "Neural responses to reward moderate the association between negative experiences and daily negative affect."

A robust neural response to appetitive images is associated with reduced depression in times of stress
Aislinn Sandre (with collaborator Rosemary Bagot) has published a new paper demonstrating that a larger LPP to erotic images prospectively predicts fewer symptoms of depression under times of heightened stress. Congratulations, Aislinn!

Third-year student Paige Ethridge has just had a manuscript accepted at the International Journal of Psychophysiology, for a special issue on reward and feedback processing. Entitled "Psychometric Properties of Neural Responses to Monetary and Social Rewards across Development," the manuscript evaluates the internal consistency and generalizability of the Feedback Negativity (FN), Reward Positivity (RewP), and different means of quantifying differences between conditions, in participants from age 10 to age 60. Congratulations, Paige!

Second-Year graduate student, Aislinn Sandre, has new first-authored paper accepted in Cognitive Affective and Behavioural Neuroscience! Entitled "Childhood maltreatment is associated with increased neural response to ambiguous threatening facial expressions in adulthood: evidence from the late positive potential," the paper describes new findings suggesting that childhood maltreatment may be associated with increased sensitivity to ambiguous threatening information in adulthood.
